Nontarget Trapping Incident Report

Reported: Mar 22, 2008
Location: Upper Askam, Pennsylvania

Species: Cat
Trap Type: Leghold
Incident Date: Mar 19, 2008

Victim's Disposition: unknown
Victim's Name: unknown

Legal Action: unknown
Result: n/a

Summary: A feral cat with a leghold trap on his front paw wandered into a woman's yard. The cat wandered off before an SPCA responder arrived to take care of the animal. The woman's only recourse was to use a humane cat trap and return the cat to the SPCA for euthanasia. Since the cat wandered off, presumably it "die[d] a slow agonizing death."
